Gluten-free, pescatarian

Quick Korean-Style Bowl

Shrimp (I used half a pound or so small cooked shrimp, but uncooked would have been even better)
2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder or cornstarch
2 Tbsp. neutral oil
Two big hand fulls snap or snow peas
2 cups finely shredded carrots
2 green onions, sliced

For the sauce:

1 Tbsp. gochujang
2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce (or honey soy – something salty & sweet)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced.
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. arrowroot powder or cornstarch
2 Tbsp. water

Heat your largest skillet over high. Add the oil to heat up.

While the oil is heating, toss the shrimp in the cornstarch.

Add to the pan, stir-frying until just beginning to brown.

Add the snap peas, stir-frying until warmed through.

Add the carrots, stir-frying until well distributed.

Add the sauce, stir-frying until the mixture looks homogeneous as possible and the sauce begins to thicken.

Add the green onions, give it a couple stirs, and serve.

Serves 2 for dinner, with or without 1 for lunch depending on whether this is all you eat
